A Berkley Prime Crime novel, this story has little to do with making saddles.
When Ruby McGavin’s husband of six months commits suicide, she is amazed to learn he has willed to her his one-quarter ownership in his family’s California ranch that she knew nothing about. She wants to meet his family, then move on with her life, however, she is challenged by her late husband’s spiteful mother, his two secretive brothers and a shocking family secret. Fascinating characters, clever plotting and sharp writing keep the pages turning. —Phyllis Morreale-de la Garza
